You know how sometimes something on a house things stick out like a sore thumb?
Nothing but lots of concrete and hot sun.
No porch. No awning. Zero Zip Nada.
We have been talking about putting a porch or pergola over the top patio for several years and
when our neighbors decided to cut down most of the old growth trees along the fence line that were tall enough to give us some much needed shade in Summer- we knew it was time.
Without getting into the expense of adding a covered roof area- we knew a pergola
would give us quite a bit of character and break up that expanse of concrete jungle that was going on
for much less cost.
it creates the pattern.
You would think I was born with a paint brush in my hand 😉
to the right length when the wind started blowing and it looked so pretty~
so I snapped a couple photos)
